The Bakeries

Crash spent the night at Nanny and Pop’s house last night. So what did Bang I and I do while Mom was out shopping?

We made sugar cookie dough, of course.

Then we watched Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

He lost interest when the funny parts were over. He didn’t care for the singing and the true meaning of Christmas. Bah humbug…

Anyway, we made the dough, put it in the fridge to chill, watched the Grinch, then went to bed. This morning after breakfast, we checked the dough. Sure enough, it was chilled.


But not this chilled. (Thanks Nat Geo)

This morning the wind was howling. It was definitely cold. This is Canadaland, after all. And it’s snowing. C’mon Bang, lets finish those cookies!


“We are good of bakeries,” he told his mother. We’re not bakers when we’re cooking. We’re bakeries. Yesterday, he worn an apron. I wish I would have gotten a picture of him. He didn’t need it this morning to cut out the cookies.

After making some normal sized cookies, he wanted to make the tiny ones. Give’r buddy. If he messed it up I’d just roll it flat and start over. Just like Play Doh. He placed and pushed them carefully and there were no mess ups!  Probably because Woody was watching carefully. Elfis’s hangover got the better of him and he has keeled over.

Now to make the buttercream icing…

Mmmmm cookies…

If you want my sugar cookie recipe, I stole it from Georgie Bowers.

And if you want my buttercream recipe, I stole it from Karlynn Johnston (aka The Kitchen Magpie).

Side note: If you missed yesterday’s Saturday Share, head over there now and share a link. 


Carefully adding his favorite color


Our finished product. Good enough to eat!

    • Exactly. He was such a good helper. He loves baking. Or at least the adding and the mixing and putting the cookies on the tray. No so much waiting 8 minutes for the cookies to cook 🙂 That is difficult, though. Can’t blame him!
